Community Group Information | 5:30 - 7 pm
Author Presentation | 7 - 8 pm

Kay O'Neil is the author of The Birth of Kerry's Place, which tells the story of the largest provider of services and support for people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) in Canada. Named after her sister, Kerry's Place was born out of the frustration and determination of a small group of concerned parents who were desperate to change the way people with Autism were supported in the community. Please join us for this inspiring evening. Community groups which provide support and services for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities will be on hand to answer questions and to provide information.
If you're an aspiring writer, or are a novelist or poet at heart, the writing group, Writers' Ink, is the group for you. If you've always wanted to write but didn't necessarily know how to get started, or even finish, Writers' Ink will help develop the skills and confidence you will need to pursue your writing dreams! Writers' Ink also has a blog where members are encouraged to share their work. For more details, contact Mary Maw, Manager of Communications & Community Development of Caledon Public Library @ 905-857-1400 ext. 228
